md2pdf

Convenient pandoc+xelatex command line wrapper to easily style output pdf

md2pdf

This is an updated version of the script md2pdf.sh originally released by Claes Holmerson. It allows to generate pdf through xelatex and customize fonts and other aspects of the document very easily (just edit the variables in the md2pdf.sh).

You should have already installed both pandoc and xelatex. Then,

npm install -g md2pdf
md2pdf.sh markdown-file.md

The following variables can be customized by editing md2pdf:

  • paper (default: a4paper)
  • hmargin (default: 3cm)
  • vmargin (default: 3.5cm)
  • fontsize (default: 10pt)
  • mainfont (default: "Palatino Linotype")
  • sansfont (default: Corbel)
  • monofont (default: Consolas)
  • language (default: english)
  • nohyphenation (default: false)
  • columns (default: onecolumn)
  • geometry (default: portrait)
